Kits are from Letterbox Lab (the ‘magic’ kit). Please visit their website to see if you would like to order some for your children!

The Investigate Box and the Explore Box are both a series of 12 science kits. You can get them through a flexible monthly subscription, purchasing them individually or pre-paying for as many months as you want.

Discounts are potentially available to those in receipt of Free School Meals. Please contact school if you are in receipt and are interested in a kit for your child/ren. 


Blackpool local offer

The Blackpool Local Offer gives children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their families. We provide information about what support services Blackpool Council and its partners think will be available in our local area.


Blackpool Special Educational Needs and Disability Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) is a statutory service. They offer free independent, confidential and impartial information, advice and support to children and young people with special educational needs (SEN), and those with disabilities, and their parents or carers who have children and young people 0-25 years.

They work closely with partners including Blackpool Council, nurseries, schools, colleges, social services, health organisations and the voluntary sector. They are part of the National Information Advice and Support Service Network (IASSN) which operates throughout the UK.

Tea and Talk Information Drop-in Sessions

Do you have a child, young person with SEN (Special Educational Needs), or do you feel that your child/young person is struggling with their education?

Do you have questions about how your child should be supported in nursery, school or college?

If so, why not come along to an informal SENDIASS virtual Skype tea and talk information sessions to see how they can help?

Just contact them via email at sendiass@blackpool.gov.uk to let them know which date you would like to go along and they will send you an invitation; it couldn’t be easier!

Session numbers are limited so register early to secure your preferred date.
